Together at Home

When we're all together, there are just seven of us - we have a really small family! This week, we have six - we had to get along without Jana, who was stuck in D.C. So this is how the week went - here we are, missing Jana!

A lovely day for lunch on the deck.

That pesky Dylan - always hiding Uncle Tom's hat!

Major computer time spent playing World of Warcraft - a typical Steiger get-together:

Jana is in this picture!

Taking advantage of a peaceful moment!

At the Cottage!

Sharon and John rented a beautiful, spacious cottage on East Bay for ten days. This afternoon was the perfect time to go help them enjoy it! The weather was gorgeous, the clouds were fluffy, and the sand was hot! Everybody had a super time. Thanks, Sharon and John.

Kevin, Amy, & Maya

Cousins continue - adult cousins with the next generation of cousins!

Tom came from the Pacific to the Great Lakes

Here's the peanut gallery watching the frivolity:)

Such a beautiful beach

Laurie (Florida) and Tom (California) meet in the middle!

What a great cottage this was;

General beachy type fun!

Baby Maya can be Miss Personality!

Life at the cottage - the Good Life :)

After such a wonderful afternoon, we decided to go out to dinner - Dylan voted for dinner at Moomer's, and so...

Thanks again, Sharon and John - we had a great day.

GenFest 2010

This year we had 33 family members at our annual GenFest family picnic - counting infants and children! There were 7 who couldn't come, and that's a lot. We like it better when everybody's here! The weather was overcast and sometimes threatening, but we really lucked out and didn't have big rain, just a few drops for a short time. The sun even came out for a while and we had blue skies. The weather didn't interfere at all with our good times!
